Capacity Members Zone Upgrade

At last! We have finally been able to upgrade the storage capacity of our members zone on our website, with already a nice addition as a consequence.

Did you know that, prior to 1986, there were ALSO nice articles published (limited) by our members? Well … these articles – and a handy index in excel – are now also available in our members zone so that you can all go and browse … purple in Muricidae, preparation of chitons … you name it!.


Shell counting day

Shell counting day 19 March 2022

Saturday 19 March 2022 is THAT day again. Already for the fifth time, you can gather shells on the “Grote Schelpenteldag”., admire them, and try to figure out the story behind your find.

At the same time, you help science a little bit.. In each of the ten coastal towns, shell savvy people will help you at the counting posts between 10h and 16h with the collecting and identification of your one hundred shells.

And if hundreds of enthousiasts do so, we can all learn a lot again about these fantastic sea creatures. Experienced or not,, everyone can become a (sea)scientist for a day!

Further information and subscription to the news letter can be found on www.groteschelpenteldag.be or Grote Schelpenteldag 2022 | Vlaams Instituut voor de Zee (vliz.be)
